Am I the only one insulted by...

...the corniness of this forum's subtitle?

There's got to be something better, like Archer's tagline: "Let's go!"

No, seriously, there's got to be a better subtitle......

There should be some reference to Porthos, since that's the only "Enterprise" character I liked.

You're right about the tagline though...
It should say: "Enterprise: The final frontier begins here."

I never saw the subtitle as "insulting" or even corny, but I do think your sugestion of "Let's go!" is better than the one we have now.

Yeah, I like that. I think "in this forum!" is what gives the current slogan its corniness. Your idea keeps to the same theme but sounds less annoying.

Re: Am I the only one insulted by...

Since I was kinda the one who suggested the forum subtitle, I don't have a problem with it. Anyone who feels "insulted" by it really needs to find a hobby.

Trust me, better that than "You can't be afraid of the wind."

Although with Star Trek XI's forum the current home of verbal flatulence, maybe we could donate it.

^ Hell, it should just be Archer's gazelle speech from Shockwave, Part 2.

Insulted suggests that I may sometimes mistake myself for Jonathan Archer.
And be ashamed at my catchphrase being "let's go".
Which would be interesting.

Re: Am I the only one insulted by...

...I don't see anything wrong with it. XD After all, it fits Enterprise and discussion thereof. Better than "There's coffee in this forum!" That's sort of like declaring "This forum is as poisonous as Neelix's cooking!". :P

I always thought it was one of the better, if not the best, of the forum taglines. I always thought the tagline was a very subtle reflection of the way that ENT may have gone against some fans' perceptions of the beginnings of earth's explorations of the [i[final frontier[/i]

Re: Am I the only one insulted by...

Forgive me, I misspoke. I'm not so much "insulted" as disappointed; I just intuit that there might be something better is all.

The point being made is let's be humorous rather than pompous. I like the Voyager forum's subtitle.

"Enterprise: The final frontier begins here." is an improvement. It means the forum takes itself less seriously. But I, for one, had rather see a joke.
Maybe, to quote Trip (because let's admit it, he's the favourite here):

"Keep your shirt on!"
Or,
"Keep your shirt on if you're not a snazzy dresser", to combine 2 of his quotes.


Timewalker, where do you get all these cool smilies and dancing fishes?
(cf. "Pitch terrible ideas for episodes" thread in General Trek Discussion - the funniest thread I've read this far.)

How about "No more cheese for you Enterprise forum goers" or just
"No more cheese!" or something, like,
"There's cheese in this forum"? No, that will never fly.
Or,
"The first warp 5 beagle forum" ... etc. Brainstorm, guys! Everybody gone to bed?

Maybe there is something wrong with it.
Maybe we should get together and do something about it.
